Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
Look at history as your guide. Alexander the Great was a king of tiny Macedon, yet he managed to conquer the heavily populated Persian Empire along with many other conquests.
The tiny island of Great Britain managed to conquer the semi-continent of India, even though India is vastly larger in terms of population. In fact, the British took Hong Kong.
The examples are endless.
In truth, military planning and strategy, technical superiority, resource allocation, mobilization and availability, as well as a general knack for war are what are generally required.
The US has better, more seasoned military commanders (when is the last time China was in a war?), has better military technology, has more guns, planes and bombs, and.... perhaps most importantly..... the US are seasoned and tested on the battlefield, unlike the Chinese.

Try telling the IRS or your accountant that.
Yes, but not even close technologically.
I cant get much out of my oldest in terms of specifics, ( he's been in 8 years ), other than there is tech on our boats we wont know about for another 20 years.
And I'm not talking about the Rail Gun or Laser. He rolls his eyes when I bring them up.
And they don't seem to be too concerned with Russian or Chinese tech either.
Point is, rather than buying the hysteria and the hype, use your own eyes and ears.
